*** ALERT ***
November 5, 2015 - Idaho Secretary of State Lawerence Denney is warning businesses to beware of a scam targeting Idaho corporations. A firm called Corporate Records Service is contacting Idaho businesses by mail in an attempt to collect a $125 fee to fill out a corporation’s “Shareholders, Directors and Officers Form.” The Idaho Business Corporation Act does not require corporations to file such form or pay such a fee with the state or any private entity.
The false notice states that the fee must be paid, but there is no fee due to the state for that purpose. The annual report is the only yearly report that is required to be filed with the Secretary of State’s office, and there is no fee to file that report if it is filed on time.
Corporations should be on the alert for this third party mailing, it is NOT a required filing by the State. We recommend that corporations who receive this mailing contact your local office of the Better Business Bureau for more information.
June, 2015 - Idaho Secretary of State Lawerence Denney is warning businesses to beware of a scam targeting Idaho businesses. A firm called Division of Corporate Services, Business Compliance Division is contacting Idaho businesses by mail in an attempt to collect fees. The false notice states “NOTICE OF POTENTIAL COMPLIANCE VIOLATION”. When contacted, you are instructed to be in compliance and that you must purchase a certificate of goodstanding. The Idaho Uniform Business Organizations Code does not require entities to purchase a certificate of goodstanding to remain compliant.
Businesses should be on the alert for this third party mailing. It is NOT required by the Secretary of State office. We recommend that businesses who receive this mailing contact your local office of the Better Business Bureau for more information.
Please note: All business entity information that is filed with our office is public record and is made available online through our search.
